She Told Me

She told me that she couldn’t love me
the way I loved her, and then
she told me that I never loved her, and then
she told me that she loved me more than I knew.
I didn’t believe any of it, so
she told me that she didn’t want someone like me, she
wanted someone she could lie to, someone
incapable of seeing through her.
It’s flattering to have my heart broken,
and how majestic the necessity.
